Team Lent Course 2020

We are delighted to inform you that the Lent Course for 2020 has been chosen and we will be running a series of sessions based on the book "Where the Lost Things Go" by Lucy Berry.

"Where the Lost Things Go" is a 'practically perfect' Lent course for small group study - or for reading on one's own - based on the popular film Mary Poppins Returns.  Poet and Minister Lucy Berry skilfully draws out some of the themes of the Oscar nominated movie and shows how we can consider them more deeply alongside passages of the Bible.

The course is based around five weekly sessions, entitled:

- Were we dreaming? Belief and Unbelief

- This can't be happening!  Loss, denial and acceptance

- The Banks Children? Or the Bank's Children?

- Lost People, being found: Fogs and the Wilderness

- Light! A seriously heavy symbol

Each session includes suggested clips from the film and discussion questions, Bible readings and closing prayers.

As with previous years, we will run a number of groups across the team and we will purchase a copy of the DVD movie so if you have not seen it, we can arrange a time for us to view all together before breaking away into our groups or for each group to view together.

If you are interested in taking part in this course, please complete the expression of interest form attached and further information will be sent to all who have responded.

The study book will need to purchased and Shoemakers in Newbury are doing our team a special discount (more on that to follow).

We are also looking for Session Leaders so if you would like to lead a course, please email fenella@hermitage-team.org.uk and let her know.

Please complete the form below and we look forward to spending this season of Lent with you.

Save our Bells - Hampstead Norreys Church

Appeal for the Repair of the Bells at St Mary’s Hampstead Norreys

As many of you will be aware the bells at St Mary’s have been silent for last two to three years. This is because they are now unsafe to ring and require significant repairs to be carried out prior to them being declared safe  to ring once more. The total repair costs are estimated at about £60,000.

We have recently launched a fundraising project under the banner “Silent Knights” as the founders of the bells in the 17th century were members of the Knights family.

There are two elements to our fundraising – national and local. We are in the process of applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund and other national grant providers. Success in all these cases is greatly enhanced if good fundraising support is achieved locally. We would like to raise at least £2,500 from the local church community and by making a donation through the Good Exchange website the money will be match funded so we will receive twice the amount of the donation.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause please make a donation using the following link:

We thank you and are grateful for your support.  If you have any questions please contact us at: bells@hampsteadnorreys.org.uk
